The CIA did a lot of dubious experiments, some on the general
public. In one I read about they set up a fake brothel with two-way
mirrors and doped the hapless punters with acid to test their
reactions. Apparently there were a lot of dangerously deranged
people wandering about, including a CIA agent who had some acid
slipped into his coffee as a joke, apparently the entire staff spent
the day searching for him! Nice to know what your tax dollar is
spent on eh?

Sadly I doubt wether any mentally ill people would end up better
after a good trip, it does tend to lay bare any underlying problems
you have.
